Pins and Needles

If you are here for the giveaway, there is still time to enter! We hope you'll look around our blog a bit too, starting below.

I have been on pins and needles wanting to share these adorable bottle-top pin cushions.

They are made with felt, embroidery floss and the tops of plastic bottles (water and soda pop). They are totally fun and quick to make and they are very handy while sewing. They are also very tiny. I love them! I think you'll love them, too, and they're going to be part of another give-away coming up in the near future.
I put magnets in a few of them so they can stick to a sewing machine. However, if you don't sew, they can be used on your refrigerator.
See tutorial here.

They keep getting cuter and cuter.

FYI all you crafters out there. I saw an idea where you make pin cushions for your sewing machine needles out of the type of fabric the needle is for. i.e. a heavy machine needle would be made out of denim. I think that would work well for these little pin cushions.
